Human Barbie reveals she starves herself: 'Breatharian' believes she can live off...
The Daily Mail ^ | February 28, 2014 | Deni Kirkova

Posted on 02/28/2014 12:23:30 PM PST by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

Ukranian model Valeria Lukyanova, who lives her life as a 'human Barbie' has revealed she doesn't consume food or water anymore.

Some have said she uses plastic surgery and Photoshop to create her doll-like image, but her impossibly thin waist could actually be down to not eating for weeks.

The model, 23, has said she is now converting to 'Breatharianism' - training herself to live off only light and air.

'In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all; I'm hoping it's the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone,' she has said.

The model and singer's new vice, Breatharianism, is a cult that believes food - and possibly water - are not necessary.

A breatharian is said to be someone who never eats or drinks as they can exist on 'cosmic micro-food', according to the International Business Times.

The practice is criticised as potentially lethal pseudoscience, and several practitioners have reportedly died of starvation. None have submitted themselves for comprehensive medical testing.

With her pinched waist, skeletal arms, enormous coloured contact lenses, thick make-up and vacant expression, Valeria believes she has become a living, breathing Barbie - something she sees as the ultimate embodiment of perfection.

Oh, it's a final stage alright...just not the one you're hoping for.

Double sirloin burger, medium rare, with cheddar and bacon sounds good right about now. Let me check to see which chef is working today . . . .

No, I don't think there is any "potentially" about it, if you go without food and water long enough it will be lethal.

She doesn’t look starved in this.
Slim but normal, no bones poking out.
If she really does follow through on this business though that will change.

For her sake I hope its all about the publicity.

Her waist looks disproportionately too small compared to the rest of her. Bet she's had a rib or two removed.

That said, you heard it here ....... there will be reality show on this idiot very soon.

With a statement like that, she must be a natural Blonde.

I think she looks fine in that picture. Not quite what I had imagined from the description in the text. Don’t much care for the doll-like face but the rest of her looks pretty normal right now.

IIRC the original leader of the Breatharians in the bay area was caught going through the Mickey Ds drive thru late at night.

I like curvy. My honey is 5'8" about 150lbs and all curves in the right places. She can rock 6" heels and a tight red dress like Marilyn Monroe. She is 46 and when we go out 25 year old bartenders(men and women) can't keep from flirting with her. Who likes skinny..pfffft. My ex wife was rail thin and was never my tastes personally.

Which remind me of an old joke:

911 operator: 911. What is your emergency?

Man: Yes, I think my wife is dead.

911: You think she’s dead. What makes you think she’s dead?

Man: Well.....the sex is the same, but the dishes are piling up! (nyuck,nyuck)

Back in the 1930’s and 1940’s the German government maintained whole camps where they solicitously administered this health regime to whole groups of people, the most favored of whom were Jews and Gypsies. Some of the best of these were Buchenwald, Dachau, and Ravensbruck.

Under Stalin there were millions of this gal’s fellow Ukrainians who were forced to subsist on light & air and died as a result.

From the 1932 collectivization famine through the end of WWII, IIRC.

That’s why the Ukranians aren’t particularly turned on by Vlad and the Russians.
